I have a rock band and make a lot of manual MySpace requests each day. I also have a software company, so I know the value of automation for this process. So here's what I need: An app in C++ (for Windows) that embeds Microsoft's browser control that partially automates the process of the "friend request" in MySpace. In case it matters to you, this is not a spamming tool, but rather something that will save me many hours of tedious, mind-numbing work. Here are the things the app needs to do: - Import a list of numeric values (friend IDs) from a text file, each value separated by a CR. - Once imported, and a "Go" button is clicked, construct a predefined URL string, using the friend ID as a paramater, and open the target page in the web browser control (not the user's default browser) that is embedded in this app. - Do some error trapping (I'll give specific conditions later, but you can assume there are about 10 cases that you will have to allow for, such as abortion of the post due to a required captcha (I don't think we can defeat their captcha, but if we can I'd be interested in that too, because it would save me further time). - If all the error trapping succeeds, then post the friend request automatically, along with a global text message that is set before the "Go" is clicked. - Check for a confirmation page. Once successful, close the current window or launch another session in a new tab, closing the current window behind you. - Loop through all the IDs in the list, and play a sound when the process is stopped. It doesn't need to race through. Having a few seconds pause between posts is desired.
